Reports suggest that Port Vale winger Ben Whitfield is interesting League Two rivals Colchester United.
The 22 year old didn’t make the starting line up for Vale’s 1-0 win at Crawley.
Colchester manager John McGreal is looking for new signings telling the local media: “I’m still looking to add. We thought we had a player last week, but we couldn’t get it over the line.”
Whitfield spent last season on loan with the Valiants, making 40 appearances in total.
He was released by AFC Bournemouth in the summer and opted to return to Port Vale on a free transfer at the end of August.
However, he has not been a regular starter, starting 14 league games so far, with a further five substitute appearances.
